Council-Ratepayer Communication App

A Smart Tool For Local Councils.

YourSay Ratepayer-Council Communication AppPublic-Democracy’s “YourSay” App moves local Councils into a new era of community consultation by accessing a tool nearly all Ratepayers carry.- a mobile phone.

• The App opens a new channel for reminder notices, event announcements and safety warnings. Council has the opportunity to use this video format for delivering peronalised messages to Ratepayers - pieces to camera by the Mayor or Councillors or a Committee spokesperson. This creates the opportunity for raising the recognition factor and build a sense of community.

• Video Templates can be built to speed up the content creation process that reduces lead time and creates a familiar and professionalised delivery format .

The App is designed for enabling immediate feedback with minimum intrusion into people’s lives because we have developed the technology to directly embed interactive questions into the video, allowing the user to respond while watching the video, without having to change screens.

These responses are transmitted in real time to the database creating an instant and accurate record of community reaction to proposals or policy ideas.




The Innovation that sets our App apart:

The multimedia environment of the smartphone has become a familiar environment through the massive uptake and popularity of social media. By receiving an overview of a possibly complex community issue as a video, Ratepayers are able to become educated and aware of the opposing arguments in a form that is engaging and easy to grasp. Dense text documents reduce participation and disadvantage those with low literacy.

People are often too busy to take the time to visit Council websites.

Email campaigns have also proven to elicit low response rates.

The "YourSay" App broadcasts Explainer Videos that are delivered direct;ly “into your pocket or handbag”  that tell a story with a vibrant combination of action footage, interviews, voiceovers, sound & music, images and animated text. An issue can be summarised with both pro and con arguments ensapsulated in an entertaininga and easy to digest form.

Response questions are embedded in the video for instant spontaneous and informed feedback from the people you are elected by. You have accurate statistical records.

Your voters are better informed and more likely to respond and engage.

The cost basis is highly fvourable and the ease of use and low intrusion further encourage and facilitate participation.

About Public-Democracy

A Political App That is a Game Changer for Direct Democracy

The innovative Public-Democracy App utilzes interactive video and swipe gestures for instant low cost polls and elections, with real-time analytics, and is designed to allow a fast, non-intrusive tool for voters to communicate their attitudes to important issues directly to their representatives (both in government and membership organisations).

The ultimate aim of Public-Democracy is to overcome the practical roadblocks to Direct Democracy (where every voter has the right and power to vote on specific legislaton, candidates or decisions). In a mass society it is a impossible to cast votes on every issue in the tradtional way - technology must be involved, and increasingly it is possible to visualise a more agile and fair Democracy - using smart devices that we all carry - to participate.

The Public-Democracy App's biggest innovation is  a revolutionary ability to interact directly with videos. Complex issues are best conveyed  by video rather than large blocks of text for easy and more democratic voter engagement (and helping overcoming some language difficulties).

Swipe gestures make it fast and easy to casti your vote making so there is minimum use of your time encouraging participation in a busy 21st century world.  A contimuous "worm graph" ican be generated as you indicate your emotional responses to a video - by sliding up or down at the point of contact on the device screen - allows you to record continous nuanced responses in reaction to videos. This is great for political parties to test out ads and messages in pre-release form to be certain that their message is resonating and communicating with their constituents. (This is also a great tool for movie producers to test movie trailers).

The Public-Democracy App is poised to revolutionise the relationship between voters and representatives or candidates and is the dawning of a new age of Direct Democracy.


A Little History...

Co-founder of Public-Democracy Eric Gyors had a dream, arising from spending some 20 years in the political arena as a state & federal Campaign Director. In the rough and tumble of his working life Eric had experienced that there was a large and frustrating disconnect between the general public and their elected representatives that he was trying to manage and promote. Sure enough the people would vote for 'someone', but more often than not this 'someone' was a person that they had not only never met, but in many instances had never even heard of! Basically people were being asked to entrust their future well-being and that of their country to a total stranger.

If they tried to contact this person, or their elected representatives, they would be fobbed off with a form letter that more often than not didn't address the question they may have wanted an answer to.... this was not a perfect democracy by any means... [...]

The Public-Democracy Interactive Video Polling Platform It's about engagement!

Our service about us


Social branding—goes beyond social, or even digital, media. At the core, it’s about achieving resonance between you and your constituents’ expectations and values—through communications, offerings, and behavior.

Your constituents have new expectations. They want to interact with your organization. They want to know (and feel) how your organization and its brand align with their personal brands and values.

Determine the core values of the people in each target group; what is it they wish most to achieve? What is relevant or urgent for them? These are the “ways in” for your organization.


Quantitative research will tell you what customers have done in the past. Qualitative conversations with important stakeholders are a great way to uncover the essence of why people are—or may come to be—engaged with you.

To have conversations that are meaningful, you need to know who your constituents really are. You need to learn what they care about, what moves them, what keeps them up at night, how they like to be communicated with, and what your value to them is—or could be.

Your constituents are all the people for whom your work is meaningful—the internal and external populations whose interest, participation, and advocacy are important to your stability, growth, and long-term success.


As your organization evolves, and engages in more areas of endeavour, the challenge is to start and nurture more relationships than ever before.

Like your organization, your constituents are not monolithic. They’re complicated and multi-faceted. And while articulating who you are and what you provide is very important, it’s only part of the equation.

The most fruitful conversations are based on shared values and expectations.


Organizations that are successful at maintaining varied relationships are skilled at understanding the individuality of their different constituents, and at determining the corresponding “ways in” that meet people where they’re coming from.

Who are the different groups you must successfully engage? What is it they care about? What do they stand for? What do they want to accomplish?

Strive to find the points of emotional connection. The answers you’ll hear will surely vary from person to person, buy you’ll likely find a handful of common threads to help you group constituents (and organize communications) by what they care about and value.

Change the Political Game - close the communication gap
"You don't win elections by persuading your most devoted supporters to cast a vote for you with even more enthusiasm than they did at the last election…You win elections by persuading people who didn't vote for you at the last election to vote for you. Elections are always won at the centre'.

Beyond this question, we might also ask what a focus on style at the expense of substance, on personality instead of ideology, says about the current state of play in politics. The world is ready for change. Hung parliaments, minority governments, hostile senates run by extreme minorities are all signs that the voter feels disenfranchised - that politicians aren't listening. Harness technology to make sense of the background "wallah" - get your message through to those who count.
